What Gig's Have You Been To?

Couldn't see a thread dedicated to live music.

I went to see The Specials last night at Rock City,Nottingham.  Good gig small venue (about 2500).  Decent atmosphere.  Was almost a very short concert with Mr Hall threatening to walk off after bottles were thrown.  It seems some people just can't help acting like idiots.  Some well dressed folks about too.  I'm always blown away when I see a women skinheads, a male skinhead so what?  But a woman skinhead that takes guts.

  • 3772680693?profile=RESIZE_930x

  • Friday night, last gig of the year (set out to do one a month, finished on 24 for the year!) the Funky Christmas Party @ The 100 Club, Oxford Street.  The extremely credible Crowd Company (no, me neither) supporting the incredible Haggis Horns.





  • Hanna Williams & The Affirmations @ Oslo, Hackney. The barefoot chanteuse and her band of soulful funksters blew the bloody doors off with a performance guaranteed to take the chill out of a cold and damp London night.  Shame they were late on stage and I had to leave before the end of the show, so no set list for this one but the new album featured heavily.


  • The fabulous Stone Foundation at Chalks, Brighton.  The boys were trying out new material from the forthcoming 2020 album - it’s gonna be a goodun.


    • Got my tickets for April! :-)

    • They are really on it at the moment Kai, not sure when the new album drops but the tunes sound polished and slip into the set naturally, so it can’t be far off. 

  • The Black Pumas, on stage and off - Dingwalls, Camden

    Wow!  ‘Touch The Sky’ was the show highlight for me.
